The only way to keep multiple numbers from appearing for a contact is to only have one number for the contact. Even if you set numbers to Work/Home/etc, the phone will still offer them as choices when composing a blank text. If the numbers are not appearing on the Contact Card for the person you're messaging, make sure that they haven't been synced from a hidden profile card on another program (Exchange/Outlook, G+, FB, etc). Contacts with multiple profile cards will usually have an icon for each app on their card, if they've automatically joined together.
With FB contacts, it's all or nothing. You cannot isolate them from any 1 feature of the phone. If you wish to get rid of them altogether, launch the FB app and in the settings change the contacts to Do Not Sync.

If it ain't broke, use a sledge hammer.
